About Us

About The Program Leaders.

Between us we have over 100 years experience in the use of instructional technology and its application in the enhancement and transformation of schooling.

Mal’s background is in educational administration at the school and system level while Roger’s is more from the technology and marketing industries, with however both of us in our mature years focussing on how best to use the digital technology to transform the quality and relevance of schooling in the 21st century.
